Waiting on Wednesday (#6)

"Waiting On" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

Ashfall by Mike Mullin

Expected publication: October 11th 2011 by Tanglewood Press

Under the bubbling hot springs and geysers of Yellowstone National Park is a supervolcano. Most people don't know it's there. The caldera is so large that it can only be seen from a plane or satellite. It just could be overdue for an eruption, which would change the landscape and climate of our planet.
Ashfall is the story of Alex, a teenage boy left alone for the weekend while his parents visit relatives. When the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts unexpectedly, Alex is determined to reach his parents. He must travel over a hundred miles in a landscape transformed by a foot of ash and the destruction of every modern convenience that he has ever known, and through a new world in which disaster has brought out both the best and worst in people desperate for food, water, and warmth. With a combination of nonstop action, a little romance, and very real science, this is a story that is difficult to stop reading and even more difficult to forget.
I am absolutely obsessed with this book. Ever since I first heard about it, I knew I just HAD TO get it!! And so I did everything I could think of to get my own ARC of it.. Let's hope it will get here soon! *fingers crossed*

What are you waiting on this week?

Leave me a linky, I'll drop by!

This is an awesome read! It's available on Netgalley right now. Or you can go to Mike's website and email him. He's really nice. He's going to be doing a blog tour in Sept/Oct as well.
